Born in Greenville, South Carolina, conductor and keyboardist STEPHEN KARR is a compelling interpreter of opera and orchestral works. He has conducted productions of Trouble in Tahiti, Così fan tutte, The Turn of the Screw, La Calisto (LA premiere), Ariadne auf Naxos and The Rake’s Progress (LA professional premiere), among others. The Los Angeles Times praised his performance of the Stravinsky as having kept orchestra, cast and chorus on “well-articulated rhythmic track.”
Stephen’s schooling includes degrees in organ performance and orchestral conducting. He lives in Long Beach with his wife, Hannah Waldman and their children Leonard and Eleanor.
